Photographer's Note

Cres (pronounced "Tsres" in Croatian, Italian: Cherso, German: Kersch, Latin: Crepsa, Greek: Ch鋨sos, Χερσος) is an Adriatic island in Croatia. It is one of the northern islands in the Kvarner Gulf and can be reached via ferry from the island Krk or from the Istrian peninsula (line Brestova-Porozina).

With an area of 405.78 km, Cres is, together with Krk which is the same size (but thought to be the largest for years), the largest Croatian island. The island has a population of 3,184 (2001).

Cres and the neighbouring island of Loinj once used to be one island, but were divided by a channel and connected with a bridge at the town of Osor. Cres's only fresh water source is the Lake Vrana.
